How Much Energy Do You Have In Hours Per Day?
« on: May 23, 2014, 08:37:03 PM »
I know it's probably different for everyone, but I noticed in the last few years, I only have about 3 hours of energy per day. No matter how hard I push myself, after that 3 hours I have to go lay back down and I feel totally exhausted. If I'm in a situation where I'm around friends or something and I have to exceed that 3 hours, I am bed ridden for a day or two to recover. Exercise seems to give me a placebo effect for about a week or two, I'm able to hit 4 hours of energy, then I crash again. I have tried every diet known to man and it seems like the only one that really helps is fasting or extremely low calories, but I can't eat nothing forever. I'm 37 years old I shouldn't have the energy of a 90 year old, in fact a lot of people  twice my age have way more energy than me. Caffeine, stimulants and antidepressants seem give me horrible anxiety, so I feel like I'm kind of screwed :(

It is definitely connected with POIS because after about 3-4 weeks without ejaculation it starts to get better, then I get so horny that I end up having a nocturnal emission or sex and I'm messed up again for weeks.

Was curious how many hours of energy do the members in this group have per day and what helps you?

Thanks in advance!

My energy levels drop significantly when in POIS.  I require at least 2hrs more sleep for the same rest, I'm not as motivated or sharp, and it really sucks.

That being said, I can work about 12-14hrs a day when outside of POIS, between 8-12 when in POIS.

That's interesting Samir. I have been avoiding orgasm, looking at nude or half nude pictures, any sexual desire or even sexual thoughts for almost two months. I have barely had any POIS symptoms and I have a lot more energy which is good, but I feel so deprived I'm not sure if it is worth it. Don't know how much longer I can live my life like this.

Well, i tried to live like this but in the end (after 2 months just like you), i couldn't take it anymore. I need it desperetely to relieve myself. I tried to sustain as long as i could but my libido was way high. Not to mention the high possibility of a nocturnal emission emerging and destroying any effort i made.
